A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.
How to use:
- Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
- Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
- Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
- Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.
I used to have a pet. It was a guinea-pig. His name was Geoffrey. My sister also had a pet which was a rabbit. Geoffrey was a very shy pet while my sister’s rabbit was quite aggressive. They lived together in a pen in the garden. One day, I couldn’t find Geoffrey. I looked all over the garden. He was nowhere to be found. I eventually found him. He was inside one of the rabbit’s holes. The hole had collapsed. His body had been flattened. He had died. I still think that that rabbit is a murderer.
